Wigan for the cup?
Started by: roylew (2145) Report abuse
I think we will be putting our efforts this season on the challenge cup....I just can't see us being in the top 4 at the end of the super 8's

Posted by: kathpressey (4148)  Report abuse
my son said the same thing. It would be great to see them do it!

Posted by: gideonfel (230) Report abuse
When I was a lad the cup was the main highlight of the season. The championship [as it was called back then] came a poor second. How times have changed, eh?

Wiggin fans backing the CC again...

Figures, doesn't it?

Tut, tut.

If I was a betting man I'd say Wigan will win the challenge cup and win in the grand final if they get their first team back, Don't write them off tommy knockers.

Posted by: Handsomeminer (1270) Report abuse
Get some players back they,ll be one of the top teams may be a bit to late for a top four spot but they,ll have a big say in who wins what keep watching jarvo some great entertainment ahead

Wiggin are back!



Hopefully.

Posted by: roylew (2145) Report abuse
Yes they are ...just....a little fortunate...but I will take it

Posted by: whups (2269)  Report abuse
we was lucky .

Posted by: broady (12404)   Report abuse
As Whups says they were lucky but on the other hand they would have been unlucky if they had lost.

Posted by: broady (12404)   Report abuse
Salford in semi.

Posted by: roylew (2145) Report abuse
We should have the beating of them really...keep their half backs quiet hopefully

Posted by: GOLDEN BEAR (2865)  Report abuse
I did say before the draw that they would keep lancashire and yorkshire clubs apart,even the misse's said they are going to "FIX" it.

I mean can one imagine Salfords 2,000 fans at Wembley and for example 10,000 from CAS? pathetic we knew the power's that be wanted a Lncs v Yorks final . But after watching the HULL v CASTLEFORD match it was equally as good as the previous day's game at the HALLIWELL STADIUM. the weather caught all four teams out it's been a scorcher .So our selection for the final is as follows
Leeds Rhinos v Wigan Warriors . full house .

Posted by: roylew (2145) Report abuse
I don't agree that it's fixed...it's so easy to say that and childish in fact...the draw is what it is....que sera sera

Posted by: kathpressey (4148)  Report abuse
if someone is picking a random ball out of a bag and in front of witnesses , how can it be fixed?

Posted by: basil brush (8754) Report abuse
yes, fortunate, but a wins a win.

Posted by: roylew (2145) Report abuse
The players coming back tired towards the end...only natural...thought Sutton had his best game yet....albeit a couple of mistakes but that's the game....we are still too easy to score against when on our line...mr wane said that was an easy fix..but I don't see it yet....god I would love to take my grandson to Wembley...now that would be a treat (for us both)

Never heard of the warm ball, Kath?

Posted by: roylew (2145) Report abuse
Never fixed...you just hope it is...get real

Posted by: Pennywise (inactive) Report abuse
Cas would take more than 10k to Wembley.

Well, they won't now like.

Never forget my first trip to the Challenge Cup final in 1961. We got beat by Saints.
Never thinking that 20 years later I would be working alongside Cliff Watson in Australia .
Cliff played opposite Billy B on the wing in1961

I'm a big fan of rugby league and I set my stall out to watch Saturday's game on tv (I was away). It was a great game but (yes but!), six regular first team players all become fit at the same time!! The league is structured poorly if we can lose 7 league games on the trot and still be in with a chance to play in/win the Grand Final. I had a season ticket for a couple of seasons but got sick of the 8 Friday home games on the trot caper (it sounds great until you have to tear-arse around every week after work). I certainly wouldn't buy one now when the first half of the season is meaningless!

Posted by: gideonfel (230) Report abuse
Aussie94 - I think you'll find that Cliff Watson was a prop forward and played prop that day in 1961. The one who marked Billy B was Mick Sullivan.

Posted by: stars (330) Report abuse
Cliff Watson was a really good hard prop if I remember rightly he came from the Midlands

Posted by: broady (12404)   Report abuse
A bit further south than that Stars. He was born in London.

Posted by: stars (330) Report abuse
Did he sign for saints from a Midland club, I'm sure he had midlands connection, broady

Posted by: broady (12404)   Report abuse
Dudley Kingswinford in Staffs. He answered an advert " for good Rugby Union players" that Saints had put into the papers. The rest is history.

Posted by: stars (330) Report abuse
Cheers for that broady 👍
